Very disappointed in this application I heard a lot about it and was looking forward to using it. However it keeps on crashing on my Motorola g5 and stays on the black screen until it eventually comes up with an error message. Hopefully this will obtain fixed and I can change my review otherwise I will be requesting a refund. As I bought it and used it on 7.0 and refunded it and gave it another go as I clean installed and got 8.1 but it is still not working.
I've been using this application since it first came out, installed on every phone I've had incl. HTC's and Nexii(?) and it consistently impresses. I've tried CPU Tuner and CPU Manager but this one still wins for me. If I could add one feature it would be for a trigger based on which WiFi network I'm connected to.
Screen off profile doesnt work on my s4 mini. The only reason i bought the application was to under clock my cpu when screen off. Will you be able to fix it or should i request refund? Running cm10.2 with standard cm kernel, arco68's official build, xda developers
Title says it all. I've used this application for years! There's only a handful of apps on the shop that even come close to touching this one, but this is the total package! Amazing UI, and perfect profile options to obtain the best out of your device no matter what it's doing! Place your phone in beastmode while normal use, and then lock the CPU in lower state while screen is off! People find for battery life apps like crazy...This is the best thing that they could do hands down!
This has so much potential. Unfortunately, i can't obtain any application profile to activate. The worst part is that I emailed the dev a while back about it and have yet to hear back. I weigh customer service heavily, especially when it comes to a service. Edit: I would also love to see headphone support!
As of 02/19/2015 - Satisfied with SetCPU overall. Have had problem from time to time with it "stopping" but it's not very often. Just did update, so can't speak for current update, but it does what it's supposed to. On my Nexus 5, with the right profiles set up, ... I nearly double my battery life. (By restricting CPU speed when not using apps that actually need the speed...) If you're a gamer, add a profile for gaming and add your android games to the list, set how quick the CPU is allowed to go and you can still slay your battery as quick as before, ... but if you set a profile for "screen on" with a lower setting, you can save a substantial amount of battery while texting, talking, browsing the internet, etc...
This application used work on my HTC Wonderful phone. Years later I have the HTC U11 and U12+ both rooted and this application just goes to a blank screen when you begin it up. I for this application and it is now rubbish. The Dev should be updating the application or everyone their money.
Amazing Application works amazing for me. There is just one more thing to create it perfect: Pls ad more options for turning on and off profiles, like Wi-Fi on/off; Zone on/off; Do not Disturb on/off; Flashlight on/off.I Would be very thankful for this options.
My droid will not get the CPU settings. How can I set this application up manually? It does work a bit by using the default profile but I would like to have full use of this appif possible. If I can archive full use than I will give you a 5* rating but for now I'm going to give it a 3*. Thanks D.
Dropped my stars from 5 to 2. Until ver 3.1.2 fixes profile issues, do not this app. This application used to work great, and that is when I gave it 5 stars. This application is mainly really used for the screen off feature, which happens to be a profile that doesn't turn on ever. That being said, this application is useless for me.
After the Mounts2SD had moved most of the apps to sd-ext I have 193Mb of internal storage (200Mb original, LG-P500h). Then I install the applications that I needed. When I come to setcpu it refuses to install because there is not enough internal storage zone left. Then I continued to install another apps (Scut Gpen, which is much larger than setcpu) with success. Why?
This was amazing during the cupcake/froyo days......but now not important for fresh custom roms. Piomeer idea, but no longer important for vending for money profit. It needs to be FREE NOW! I bought it a long time ago, but currently have no need for it at all.
Not working correctly on Samsung Note3, N9005. Speed erratic, flabby, inconsistent. Tried all various setting, speed always remain between 1.0 to 1.2GHz on Note 3 whereby can run at 2.2GHz max Contacted developer, and totally no response from him/her. Rate 1 star unless & until this attended & resolved... now is June, still no response & modernize from developer, it crapy application not worth the paying, at all!
Recently the program was not functioning on my rooted galaxy s4. It would close itself out (even though I have background apps enabled) and effectively lose all of it's usefulness unless the application was literally up on my screen. This morning, it would not begin at all, so I uninstalled it only to search that to reinstall it I would have to it again. This is, naturally, quite frustrating but when the application is running well it works wonders. I hope the developer sees this and seeks to improve functionality.
Definite must, however I'm finding the application crashes when I test to use on my OnePlus One with Lineage 14.1. not a crash to home or black screen, it simply hangs after trying to detect device. If you set root to always allow, the application instantly crashes when you test to relaunch it from stopped. I did love this application for my Motorola Defy and Defy+.
Used to be amazing. Latest updates seem to have broken it. It no longer correctly shows what the current frequency is (always shows 0). I also had major wake lock problems while it was installed. Phone would refuse to go to sleep properly, and it seemed to be fixed when I uninstalled SetCPU.
My battery life has been through the roof by setting up a couple profiles. It's an awesome app, with an simple to use interface. Only had a small problem setting this up at first. My sliders weren't showing up. All I had to do was: (menu key)>Device Selection>Continue Recommended
I for this application cuz really like it, now that fresh CPU's are out don't know if this application handles ttle setings.......is the dev. Is out there can pleas letme know how to set both clusters using the same governor or does it automatically? I'll give back 5 stars as soon this question is respond or something.
This application does EXACTLY what it says it will do and for me, its just what I needed. Certain apps tugged on the CPU and they chugged along. Now. I have set up profiles that go to work when a certain application is used and no more chugging along. The application gets the specified CPU power it needs and runs faster and smoother. A definate need for rooted devices ie LG OPTIMUS F7. WORTH THE MONEY.
Ok, so I understand how to set the profiles to execute what I am trying to achieve, and so this is what happened. I set my CPU down for battery less than 50%, but I wish max cpu when I am running Boat Browser, which is my internet browser. I had set this profile higher than 50%, and that according to what I am reading, should have taken precedence over the battery profile, and it doesn't. I have restarted my phone, which I thought may have to be done to have these profiles kick in, and that didn't work. Uninstall and installed the program, and that didn't work. ok, so now what?
I have been a large fan and long time user of setcpu since I had my evo shift. I understand completely about root and howntonuse it but it does not work on my sprint m9. Requesting please. Inrated this 4 stars still because when it had worked it was the best out there and I wish others to test it. Respectfully, DK
I installed another application for the same and it did not work. This worked fine. Once I installed this app, and set the maximun rate, it greatly reduced the video lag on the installed YouTube application on the Nexus 7 (2013) Great! Device must be rooted and let Superuser Access.
I've used this for like three years now. Always worked for me and still does. Sure CUSTOM ROMS like cyan come with the features this but with my locked bootloader I can still have the control I need with this handy app. Just want there were a couple themes to it by now.
Amazing app. After setting the profiles my 4 year old smartphone runs faster when I use, and it's battery lasts like forever if I am just keeping the screen off. I want I could use it without rooting my smartphone. I highly recommend it to anyone with root.
Welcome Back! This application was on my Moto DEFY, and it still finds it method to my second phone Yotaphone 2, and does the same task, seamlessly as it did in the past! I'm intrigued by the continued development since a lot has changed, the stage of overclocking is over, I use it to rather hold my devices cool and save battery!
I dont know why people dislike this app. Although this application was small bit old, it still good. Even on Marshmallow. I still use it in my Mi4c to brake the quick CPUs (Snapdragon 808) and prolong the battery life. This application has profile option to tweak the clock of CPU in a lot of cases, and I love it. the settings will take a while to set it, but then it will do the job automatically. 10/10 I still recommend this old app!
First off this is a amazing application *when it works* - does everything it's supposed to. However if it doesn't begin automatically when after boot like it should, the performance of my phone noticeably suffers until I message it's not running and begin it manually. Please fix for 5 stars. Thanks! (LG Optimus G e970 running 4.4.2)
Boy do I LIKE this app'! Shades of KB896256. The phone so much smoother and faster. Glitching is gone with no overclock/overvolt. Just set my lower to 384 and my upper to 1188 and Shazaam ! Battery life does not appear to be impacted and the screen is cooler as well. I'm impressed at how well my original Sensation with ICS 4.03 modernize has responded ! Thanks for this one.
Application works for the most part beautiful well. The per application profile does not work at all. Even when I place the application in the "not this condition" other than that it works beautiful good. Want apps would change faster instead of a 5 second delay.
Even if i set minute and max CPU speed to 2.3Ghz, and set the governer to performance, the CPU speed sticks at 1Ghz or 1.3Ghz. If you have a solution to this problem, please allow me know and i will change my rating. Otherwise,'ve used this application in the past on my S2 and it worked great, i managed to overclock it to 1.5Ghz stable!
